Short Takes – The Blame Game

Opinion

The Blame Game

The few times the US government has shut down in past couple of decades, the Republicans have been blamed. Why? Because the Democrats said so. Now, the Democrats, even in their minority demand a DACA resolution favorable to them before any budget deal to finance the government can proceed. Why is that? We kicked the Democrats, indeed the whole corrupt Democrat political machine out of any authority, over three successive election cycles. I reckon we’ve got it all. Let’s use it. Why are we still afraid to do something positive?

The Schumer Shutdown represents the epitome of Democratic playbook antics that have for years stymied Republican efforts to have a Constitutional Government instead of a corrupt one. Why? Schumer still believes he can hang this on Trump and the Republicans. Historically, Republicans, fearful of legislative combat with the Democrats, have always caved lest they be called racists and bigots..….until Donald Trump.

Democrat hypocrisy is often cited but the word “Hypocrite,” when flung at Democrats has no poison in it because Democrats refuse to react to it. Too, most voters who dwell happily in the in the Democrat sheepfold don’t know what it means anyway. Republicans need to use different words like liars, cheats and thieves. Everybody knows those words because that’s exactly what the Democrat party is, a collection of liars, cheats and thieves. “Dickie” Durban is the most recent prime example of one of these creatures, not to neglect Chuckie Schumer himself.

Republican politicians, at least those that hide their principles by calling themselves “moderates” or “compassionate conservatives,“ are deathly afraid of being accused of racism or bigotry, an accusation the Leftist media is always happy to promote. So, for years, the US government has been guided by the systemic ‘fear’ that has enabled the Socialist agenda.

08 November, 2016 should have ended all that, yet here we are, our legislators in a deadlock with a corrupt minority party over government funding because an unconstitutional, illegal, Executive Order, is considered by them to have the rule of law when it does not. The consequences are enormous for the rule of law, a return to which is essential if we are to help Trump Make America Great again. Tea Parties, take notice.

To ignore the Constitution for so many years, as the Democrats have done, appears to have become the ‘norm’ instead of the exceptional method of running a government. Now a conservative leader is standing up to the Democrats and their socialist agenda and the Republicans can’t seem to get a handle on how to move forward. Good ol’ Harry Reid showed us the way.

If the Republicans want to get moving, do as Harry Reid did, eliminate the senate 60 vote filibuster rule and get on with making America Great Again. I remind Republicans, that Democrats are the minority and should stay that way forever. As for filibuster, if fairness is all that important, than require the Senators, in fact, to stand in the well and filibuster. Then the whole country will know where their Senator really stands.

In their minority, obstructionism is the only tool Democrats have left. Trump is dismantling their years of hard work to drag America firmly into the Socialist camp and ultimately the One World Order scheme. The Democrats love of Marxist-Socialist dogma remains a continuing threat to a Constitutional America. It’s time to move on no matter how painful it might be.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (21Jan18)

Sex Traffickers Will Target Atlanta During National Championship Game Weekend

SEX TRAFFICKERS WILL TARGET ATLANTA

DURING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME WEEKEND

          ATLANTA – The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, along with our law enforcement partners, are encouraging both citizens and visitors to be aware of the possibility of sex trafficking during the festivities happening in and around Atlanta this weekend and into next week.  In short, if you believe it might be, tell someone.

          “Sex traffickers are despicable people, and they use events like the National Championship game to ply their trade,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak.  “These types of events draw large crowds of revelers, and sex traffickers often seek to exploit these types of opportunities. We need everyone’s help in identifying those being trafficked for sex, and in bringing the traffickers to justice.”

          Many times those who are being trafficked are homeless, runaway, or abandoned children, but it is not limited to these groups.  Traffickers also seek out at-risk individuals, i.e. those individuals suffering from sexual/physical abuse, or dependency, while also exploiting women and children from other countries – typically from impoverished nations.

          There are some signs that people should be aware of which may indicate someone is being held against their will and trafficked for sex:

  • They do not hold their own identity or travel documents;
  • They appear to suffer from verbal or psychological abuse designed to intimidate, degrade and frighten the individual;
  • They have a trafficker or pimp who controls all their money – the victim will have very little or no pocket money;
  • They are extremely nervous, especially if the victim’s “translator” is  their trafficker; and
  • They are not allowed to move about by themselves and have little understanding of where they are.

Victims may also lack personal items, possessions, or luggage.  They may not have a cell phone or calling card.  Most may also lack private space – a trafficker or an enforcer is always present.  They most likely will not possess financial records or identification documents, or have any knowledge about how to get around in a community.

The penalties for sex-trafficking are substantial, but can only be enforced with the help of aware citizens.  If you wish to report a potential sex-trafficking incident please contact the FBI at (770) 216-3000.

For further information please contact the U.S. Attorney’s Public Affairs Office at USAGAN.PressEmails@usdoj.gov or (404) 581-6016.  The Internet address for the home page for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division ishttp://www.justice.gov/usao-ndga.
